XO Cafe

Housed in the historic 1799 John Updike House in Providence, XO Café creates a cozy dining and cocktailing atmosphere with a modern culinary experience, perfect for a romantic night out, a family gathering, or a happy hour cocktail in a lively setting.

Opened in 1997, XO led the culinary renaissance in Providence, earning such titles as “the hippest restaurant in Providence” by Chef Magazine and “Rhode Island’s Most Romantic Restaurant” by the Providence Phoenix. Now, in a city that was recently ranked #1 for foodies by Travel + Leisure, XO still features a sexy and seductive atmosphere outmatched only by the playfully composed dishes inspired by the finest natural and local ingredients and the highest level of service.

With a “harvest-to-table” philosophy led by Executive Chef Marty Lyons, XO marks the spot for creative cocktails, impressive wine list, and dishes that highlight the bounty of the sea and seasonality of Southern New England farms, such as Pumpkin Seed-Crusted Salmon with celery root gratin, wilted greens, beet & apple slaw, and Dijon gastrique; Seared Bomster Scallops with pork belly, Brussels sprouts, crispy quinoa, and carrot-ginger puree; and Grilled Pork Tenderloin with root vegetable hash, braised red cabbage, spiced cider reduction, and pickled mustard seed.

Located on the East Side and near Downtown Providence, XO Café is close to Rhode Island’s art and culture destinations, T.F. Green Airport, and WaterFire. It is also convenient to all downtown hotels and colleges, including Brown University and RISD.
